Tebis supports a vacation program for refugee children
The art workshop of Refugio in Munich offers creative and art educational vacation programs in the community accommodations for children aged 6 - 13 years with refugee backgrounds.
The children are especially affected by the pandemic, but also by their living conditions and everyday situations, and they lack meaningful opportunities for activities, especially over vacation periods.
The children take refuge in online games on their phones that are often not appropriate for their age group. Refugio wishes to counter this with an alternative during vacation times and to inspire them with creative and enjoyable activities. The vacation program is also intended to provide relief for parents who are often under severe psychological stress.
Refugio's volunteers are trained art teachers or art therapists and already know the children in the house through other projects, which gives them the trust of the parents and also makes smaller excursions possible.
With the donation from Tebis, Refugio München can finance care by art teachers during vacations.
